Title I Remember When
Description I remember when we had an outdoor toilet. It was about one fourth block away from the house and had to he scrubbed every Saturday. I remember when we had a fine horse and buggy to go clipping around town in. How we did enjoy those buggy rides and taking our friends to meet the train at the depot. I remember when we had a good jersey cow that kept our family in dairy supplies with a little extra butter to sell. The thick yellow cream had to turn sour first or the butter would not be as sweet and good. After it was churned , we enjoyed drinking the cool buttermilk and using it for cooking purposes; I would put the butter in a pan of cold water and with a butter paddle work out all the milk, add a little salt, and shape it in a pound mold. If it was for sale, I would make sure it was an extra full pound before wrapping it in butter paper for my children to deliver to our customers for twenty-five cents a pound. I remember when a salesman came to our door selling "Player Pianos" and we let him put one in our home. How the children enjoyed playing it although they were taking music lessons at the same time. There was a fine selection of rolls to play and all we had to do was pump it with our feet. "Moonlight and Roses" was one of my favorite ones, and we all liked the piano so well that when the salesman came to get it we just had to buy it. I remember how proud I was of my bread-making record. In 20 years we had never had anything but homemade bread to eat in our home, and then one day a neighbor brought us a loaf of "boughten" bread and my good record was broken. I remember how my beautiful world came tumbling down when two of ouf beloved children were taken away from us. Our son Robert was 14 years old when he fell off a cliff in the mountains and two years later a baby boy died the day he was born. I remember the day we moved away from our love nest after 17 years of wedded bliss. We moved into the old Seely home which was a large two story brick house that had a bath- room on the second floor and an ice box in the kitchen which was a luxury for us. -100-
